400 Series Shinkansen

The 400 series Shinkansen high-speed operated between 1992 and 2010 on Japan’s first mini-shinkansen line, the Yamagata Shinkansen branch from the main Tohoku Shinkansen.

The 400 series were originally painted a medium silver grey with a darker roof and area around the cab windows and underframe, but they were refurbished and repainted between 1999 and 2001. The 400 series units were much narrower than previous Shinkansen trains and at shinkansen stations steps extended from beneath the doors to bridge the gap between the trains and platforms.
